Terms and Conditions
All rental items will require prepayment in the form of a major credit card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover/AMEX). All credit card information will be stored on our secure payment gateway through our merchant account for no more than 6 months.
Your information will remain confidential and your credit card will not be charged unless you either (i) purchase the rental order with the credit card, (ii) there is damage or loss to any of the items, (iii) if items are not returned to the original laundry bags or containers in which they were delivered upon your departure, or (iv) you request additional items to be ordered after placing the original order.
Our policy lasts up to 14 days from your rental date (this includes weather cancellations). If your order is canceled less than 14 days from reservation date, there will be a 20% restocking fee deducted from the refund to the credit card you have supplied as payment. If your order is canceled less than 48 hours from reservation date, no refund is available.
Once your order is cancelled, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your cancellation request. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within a certain amount of days.
Late or missing refunds
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at Shorerentalsoc@gmail.com.

Rental pick-ups will start at 9am at the end of your rental term.
If you are ordering set-up service, please be aware that we may not be able to gain access prior to your arrival if you are renting through a private owner or if you fail to put access information in the appropriate section(s) during the checkout process.

(We will try to get into the unit while the cleaning company is there but cannot guarantee access will be granted). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
